OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Thousands of Jerusalemite demonstrators marched after Friday prayers in solidarity with the hunger striking prisoners.

The demonstrators raised prisoners’ photos, chanted national slogans demanding the release of prisoners and condemning the Israeli procedures that aim at Judaizing Jerusalem. They marched to Damascus Gate through the streets of Jerusalem and towards the sit-in tent at the Red Cross headquarters in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

They also placed Palestinian flags on the Israeli District Court and the Ministry of Justice in defiance of the Israeli occupation.

Meanwhile, the Jerusalem committee against the wall and settlement and the general secretariat of the families of Jerusalem and Palestine, with the participation of the national forces, staged a sit-in at the Damascus Gate after Friday prayers, to mark the 64th anniversary of Nakba.

Ismail Khatib, director of the committee against the wall and settlement, read a statement on the occasion stressing that the Palestinians, who suffered from displacement, deportation and killing, will never give up their national rights, despite the international community’s silence and the continued “Zionist oppression”.

The statement called on the UN to take all necessary measures to ensure the implementation of all decisions concerning the Palestinian issue, and to send an international investigation committee to monitor and follow up the occupation government’s violations of the international law and human rights.
